Unity & Helmar blog hop...secret adhesive use!

Jimmi here.

Today is the last day of the amazing blog hop
with Helmar & Susan Weckesser Unity Stamp Co. stamps!
that means it's your last chance to get the
Susan Weckesser stamps for 35% off!
don't miss out on this deal!



I thought for today I would show you my very favorite
Susan W. stamps and my favorite Helmar product.

and I'll tell you an oddball thing I use that Helmar product for...
it's NOT for stamping or crafting!!

these are my very favorite Susan W. stamps:


sail away

le mason


autumn grunge


now let's talk about a wonderful Helmar product
450 quick dry adhesive, it's my lifesaver


I use it to hem all of my pants...YEP!
this girl does not know how to sew clothes...
not even a simple hem
but luckily I don't need to!

yepper I hemmed one of these legs Friday morning
before work...takes, oh about 2 minutes :)

just fold them on the crease that should already be there
and put a tiny bit of the adhesive on the edge and
press down til it's dry.
really use just a tiny bit, you don't want it to go through
to the other side of the fabric...that would be a mess
and might mess up your pants.

I have a few pairs I've done and the
staying power is awesome.
I have a couple pairs that I did almost a year ago
and they are still holding strong.

TRUE STORY!

and some of the ladies at work have had me
hem theirs in an emergency...
I keep a bottle at my desk just for those occasions!
Now, don't forget to check out the
and the Unity Facebook Page, too!
lots of great giveaways!
AND, don't forget to leave a comment right here

Jimmi...I am sooooo gonna try this when I get some Helmar. My kids and hubby come to me all the time and say, "Mom, this has a hole in it", or "Mom, can you sew this?" My response is always..."You KNOW I don't sew" LOL
Love your favorite pics of Susan's stamps. They are wonderful.

Chat settings in Gmail are easy to navigate and use and can
be changed at any time, allowing you to personalize your Gmail chat experience continually,
according to your needs. The dependency on meeting people directly and
calling them too often has began to dwindle as meeting people on
the internet and to chat online is more favorable because it reduces the
travel time in contacting a friend conventionally, and
also cuts down the cost factor involved in doing it through mobiles and phones.
I didn't really see a point when I had text messaging, Twitter, and Facebook to choose from.
